    We are certainly in unprecedented times and circumstances as we all navigate through this global COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of its duration.  With safety and health our No. 1 priority, Publix and the GMR have made the joint decision to not proceed with the 2020 Annual Publix Supplier Meeting on June 30 at the RP Funding Center.  This decision will allow Publix as well as all of us to focus on providing the goods and services to meet the needs of our communities and customers during these challenging times.

    We do realize the importance of this event to you, your companies and leadership teams, so we are happy to announce that we have already scheduled our next meeting for May 11, 2021 at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, FL.  So please mark this date on your calendars now!

    We will continue to keep the communication line open concerning the details of next year’s event and any other GMR event that might be impacted.  Please check out our webpage and LinkedIn for future updates.

    We look forward to seeing you next year!         

    Thank you for your continued support.

    Publix and the GMR of Florida
